High Value Manufacturing opens office in Auburn, AL

May Consulting Services extends High Value Manufacturing’s consultancy and labor resources into Alabama and surrounding region


Nashville, TN (11/01/2022) – Bill May, president of May Consulting Services LLC d.b.a. High Value Manufacturing (HVM), announces the opening of a new office location in Auburn, AL.

The addition of the Auburn office will provide manufacturing companies based in the Alabama-Georgia-Florida region more personal access to the experienced professionals and services offered by HVM, based in Nashville, TN. This expansion marks the company’s second office location.

“Given the established manufacturing community in the Auburn area, we feel right at home,” said May. “The US is experiencing onshoring and reshoring of manufacturing operations that bring products closer to customers. I believe Alabama and surrounding states are poised to benefit from such growth in the manufacturing sector with a ready workforce and availability of quality educational and training resources.”

May founded HVM in 2015 following a long career in manufacturing, working with auto industry giants like General Motors and Ford. By launching the consulting company, he sought to share his knowledge and hands-on experience with small-to-medium enterprise manufacturing companies that seek to improve operations and become more profitable.

Each member of the HVM Leadership Team and labor resource pool working in client facilities across the US has a minimum of 25 years of plant floor and managerial experience. The vast experience and deep knowledge of manufacturing processes equips the HVM team to easily identify key issues in plants and to implement immediate, sustainable solutions. HVM’s proprietary operational assessment tools uncover core causes of unnecessary higher costs and inefficient processes.

In addition to operational assessments and performance improvement planning, HVM provides highly skilled and highly experienced labor resources to deliver the necessary technical expertise for operational challenges or supplemental staffing needs.

As a manufacturing industry thought-leader, Bill has led the HVM Leadership Team to adapt to changes in the Manufacturing Sector, such as launching the division of “HVM Resiliency Partners” to address supply chain issues impacting client facilities. He continues to research and write about important manufacturing topics on the company’s blog.
